Dubbed "El Chocolatito" he turned pro in the straw/light flyweight divisions in 2005. For two years he beat weak opposition all by knockout by pressuring them and hurting them with his vauted left hook. González is managed by Silvio Conrado Jr. of Nicaragua's Prodesa, and is promoted by Japan's Teiken Promotions.
After winning the WBA title, González made his debut as flyweight on December 13, 2008 where he stopped Miguel Tellez in the 3rd of a 10-round bout. He went back to minimumweight on February 28, 2009 to defend his world crown against Francisco Rosas which he won by majority decision.
González won his second title defense on July 14, 2009 by unanimous decision over Katsunari Takayama. After vacating his minimumweight title, he won the vacant WBA Interim Light Flyweight Title against Francisco Rojas in Tokyo on October 24, 2010, and was promoted to full champion in February 2011. Winning over two more Mexican boxers, Manuel Vargas and Omar Salado, respectively in March and July, both in Mexico, he retained the title.
In his third defense at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 1, 2011, González knocked out Omar Soto with his right straight and left uppercut at 36 seconds of the second round.
On March 17, 2012 Roman faced Manuel Jimenez at Sinaloa, Mexico. He won the 10 round fight via a first round knock out.
On April 28, 2012 Roman defended his WBA World light flyweight title against Ramon Garcia Hirales at Pomona, CAL. The fight ended as the count was waived by referee Raul Caiz Jr, after Garcia was knocked out twice in the 4th round.
